and plenty of it!
I so much wish I could send some of this rain to Susan, Judy, and Wanda. They need it so badly and we’re just about to drown. The ground was soaked like a sponge and then we got more rain. Don is working so hard to get things in order for the boys. And it keeps raining!
The next priority is getting the shed built. And it’s wet where Don needs to work! The auger on the tractor is what he uses to dig the post holes with. It is a marvelous piece of equipment.
More mud inside the fence just outside where the north wall of the shed will go. That water outside the fence is deeper than the top of my boots! The mud holes are from the tractor wheels. He almost wasn’t able to get the tractor back outside the fence because the ruts had gotten so deep.
Sugar Boy and Spice Girl don’t think the mud is much fun either. Goats don’t like water. That’s why we can let them have access to the pond. The goats won’t get in it but the ‘pacas will so they will be kept away from it.
That bit of framing you see is the west wall of the shed. The west and north walls will be closed walls. The east will be fencing the ‘pacas can see through and the south wall will be totally open.
Even though we’re having all this rain, Don’s getting a good bit of work done. He will pick up the tin for the roofing tomorrow.
I know I shouldn’t complain about the rain. And I am truly thankful for it. The plants love it. WWWanda gave me some rose cuttings when I made my Texas trip in December and here’s what’s going on with those right now. I’d say they look pretty good!
Oh….and guess what’s happening outside right now? More rain.
